Karnataka people continue to suffer while MLAs' relish in five star luxury

T he state is reeling under severe drought conditions with people suffering from drinking water and scarcity of fodder but the people whom they elected as their representatives have no time to listen to their woes as they are overbusy in their political games! ImageSource: This is not for the first time that the state is witnessing such a wreckless situation as it was also the same pathetic plight during October 2009 when a Bharatiya Janata Party government was in office. Then BS Yeddyurappa was the chief minister and Gali Janardhan Reddy, Tourism minister in his cabinet.An ordinary head constable's son turned mining baron, G Janardhan Reddy had literally taken the BS Yeddyurappa led BJP government for a toss as he chose to fly to Hyderabad and Goa along with more than 40 ruling party MLAs' to rebel against the 'dictatorial attitude' of the chief minister. Then most regions of the North Karnataka were marooned due to heavy rains and rapid floods ther

Karnataka power politics stoops to a new low

image source: T he tussle for retaining and assuming political power in the state of Karnataka has stooped to a new low unheard of so far with the political morale getting stuck up on the street drain.Today appeared to be a crucial day in terms of hectic turnout of political developments, both to the ruling Janata Dal-Secular-Indian National Congress combine and Bharatiya Janata Party, the main opposition party. DK Shivakumar, former state Major Irrigation Minister and Man Friday of the coalition JDS-INC parties suffered a setback as he was prevented entry to the luxury hotel where some Congress and JDS legislators are holed up.In fact he was on a mission to persuade the former legislator colleagues to win them back to the party fold. He was denied entry by the policemen in spite of having booked a room in the same hotel.He was also informed by the police on duty that his booking has been cancelled. A reluctant Shivakumar, refused to budge and continued to stay

Countdown for Karnataka JDS-INC government begins

T he HD Kumaraswamy led Janata Dal Secular-Congress coalition government which had been literally walking on a tight rope ever since it came to power in May 2018 now appears to be on the death bed, thanks to the exit polls indicating a National Democratic Alliance(NDA) government romping back at the Center.In fact the outcome of the Lok Sabha elections in the state according to the pollsters is no good news either to the sworn enemies turned partners for power. It has been projected that the Bharatiya Janata Party, currently the main opposition party is likely to emerge victorious in about 16-23 constituencies out of the total number of 28 seats. Indian National Congress(INC) is being told to win in 6-8 and the Janata Dal Secular(JDS) in 1-2 seats, and such survey results much before the formal process of counting of votes has rattled both the ruling party leaders. HD Kumaraswamy, Chief Minister who was scheduled to be in New Delhi to be part of the opposition protest has suddenly ca

Devegowda family relies heavily on divine power to retain power

Devegowda family relies heavily on divine power to retain power The temple run spree of HD Kumaraswamy, Chief Minister of the Janata Dal Secular- Congress alliance government continues to keep going unabated and the pace has dwindled now with the ten days state legislature session scheduled to commence from 10 December in Belagavi Suvarna Soudha. HD Kumaraswamy has reiterated umpteen number of time that he has occupied the chief minister’s position only because of the grace of almighty although the people of the state gave only 38 legislators to the party in the state Assembly. HD Devegowda family is again seeking divine blessings to manage the unstable power boat which has started making dangerous tilts, thanks to the frequent threats of ‘Operation Kamal’ by the 104 member Bharatiya Janata Party. A 20 days yaga for the improvement of HD Kumaraswamy’s fragile health apart from totally destroying all enemies on the political front is currently on at Sringeri, the abode of

JDS-Congress government:Six months of confusion and chaos

JDS-Congress government:Six months of confusion and chaos The HD Kumaraswamy led Janata Dal Secular-Congress alliance state government has managed to complete six months in office with enough dosage of hardships all along the way and most of the major promises unfulfilled. As a token of gratitude to the people of Mandya district the Chief Minister launched developmental projects to the tune of Rs 718 crores at Melukote,the historic vaishnavaite pilgrimage centre.The huge quantum of monetary assistance to any single district is the highest so far after the sworn enemies turned close friends assumed office on this day six months back. It may be recalled here that the ruling Janata Dal Secular party triumphed in Mandya district bagging all the eight Assembly constituencies in the May 2018 general elections.The party also retained the Mandya Lok Sabha constituency in the recently held bye elections. HD Kumaraswamy had embarrassing moments today as a farmer belonging to Mandya district co

HD Kumaraswamy continues to keep media at 'safe distance'

HD Kumaraswamy continues to keep media at 'safe distance'          HD Kumaraswamy,the Janata Dal Secular-Congress alliance state Chief Minister looks to have taken a complete U turn about his public stance and utterances on the functioning of media and that too within a short span of six months after taking over the reigns.Today he declared in a government function:Henceforth I shall not issue any press statements... The chief minister seems to be annoyed over the media criticism on his three diverse views within a short time frame of three hours.The dubious change of opinion in such childish fashion only further undermined the sanctity of the  constitutional position he holds. It so happened that just two days back Jayashree, a woman farmer and part of a unruly peasants group which barged into the premises of Suvarna Soudha on the outskirts of Belagavi aired her anger against the present CM.She blasted him for not making arrangements to pay dues to the sugarcane grow
